1. Katey Sagal Sings in Real Life
Fans know Sagal for her motherly roles on Married…With Children, 8 Simple Rules and Sons of Anarchy, but the actress sings professionally too. She’s featured on the Sons of Anarchy soundtracks at the encouragement of her husband and show’s creator Kurt Sutter.
She spoke with Rolling Stone on her early career as a backup singer for heavyweights Bob Dylan and Better Midler.
I made a living being a background singer for years. I was one of the Harlettes. Now if you go to see Bette’s show the Harlettes are mostly dancers, but in the old days, when I worked with her it was really a vocal-heavy gig. So we did a lot of the singing behind her.
2. Hailee Steinfeld Also Joins the Cast
Pitch Perfect 2 will add the True Grit star Steinfeld to its cast to join returning favorites Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow. The Oscar-nominated actress doesn’t have much of a singing background unless you include her guest-starring role in the music video for The Cab’s “Endlessly.”
